We have some potentially bad news regarding WiFi on the upcoming Treo Ace /650. It's no secret that palmOne's SD WiFi card works only with their T3 and Zire 72 handhelds, but despite some earlier indications to the contrary, it doesn't look like the card'll also work with the new Treo 650 which is due out later this year. At least not unless palmOne writes some Treo-specific drivers for it, since according to an anonymous tipster who tested palmOne's SD WiFi card with a Treo 650 he got his hands on, the card definitely does not work. We remain hopeful that once the 650 is out this problem will get solved (we're dying to find phone that's comparable to HP's h6315 Pocket PC Phone that we can use to make VoIP calls). The frustrating thing is that given palmOne's incredibly freaking annoying reluctance to release any drivers for SD WiFi cards in the first place we definitely don't expect that they'll go out of their way to offend the wireless carriers and come out with an SD WiFi card driver for the Treo 650. But we'll see.
